Thank you for your subscription to the eVersion of Reaching Out. In our ongoing effort to improve your newsletter, we have pages in the newsletter that showcase H&I t-shirts and would love for you to send us yours to feature. We continue to look for H&I artwork; many of us are talented and we like to showcase members art.
In an effort to offer experience, strength, and hope to persons leaving from a correctional facility or from inpatient treatment, we are featuring a section “Transitioning to the Outside”. We hope this section helps members move successfully to NA meetings in your community. If you have experience to share on what you did to transition, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be helping another addict.
Members are carrying the message to incarcerated addicts in Brazil, Japan, and throughout Latin America with local translations committees contributing through their efforts of translating Reaching Out that can found at www.na.org/reachingout. Experience our strength and hope in several languages.
It is our pleasure to announce that the April 2017 issue is now online and can be viewed at http://www.na.org/?ID=reaching-out-index. As soon as the next issue becomes available online, you will receive a similar notification.
Please note that if you would like to opt out of this mailing or have any questions you may reply back to this email.
Yours in fellowship,

The 2016 Conference Agenda Report included a survey to determine priorities for recovery literature. The topic that most regions prioritized for the next information pamphlet or booklet was “Mental Health.” That same Conference passed a motion, “ That the NA World Board develop a project plan which includes a budget and timeline to create an informational pamphlet specifically about mental illness and recovery for consideration at the 2018 World Service Conference.”
The Conference agreed to prioritize the topic mental health/mental illness and collect input from the Fellowship over the course of this cycle about the focus and content of the piece. Your input will help shape a project plan which will be included in the 2018 Conference Approval Track material and voted on at WSC 2018.
The deadline for input is March 15, 2017 so hurry!
Please click the link to open the online survey or download a file to print. Please discuss at your homegroup or service committees.
